I think I have a UTI but I don't go to the doctor for another week and a half is it safe to wait until I go to the doctor or should I call sooner? I am 4 weeks pregnant

  • Go now! UTI's get very painful very quickly. Best to start meds right away.

  • Walgreens carries two products called Azo or uristat, cut out all sugars and breads for a few days since it will make it work. drink only water and rest.

  • If you can't get in to see the ob/gyn, what about a urgent care clinic? I would hate to tell you ER for a simple UTI, (though during pregnancy, UTI's CAN be or become emergent) BUT, if you have NO other option, I would go to the ER, the one I go to has a "fast track" where, after triage, they send the patients who will be in and out.

  • Why would you want to deal with that for 4 WEEKS? Besides, it's bad for your kidneys I believe if you wait too long. Go now!

  • Oops, got the time frames mixed up. Still, wouldn't want to deal with that for a week and a half either!

  • Untreated bladder infections can travel up the ureters to the kidneys becoming pylonephritis (kidney infection). You do NOT want to go there. Call your Dr ASASP.
